140mm fans may not fit. As I wrote earlier, the 120mm fans I have on my Morpheus already hit the chipset heatsink and even cover all of the SATA ports. If you really want to be able to mount 140mm fans go with the MK-26. However, that heatsink is slightly older so look out for compatibility issues.


Both heatsinks have 6 heatpipes. The Morpheus is longer while the MK-26 is wider. Both are comparable in performance, but adding different fans will make a difference. The Morpheus is very easy to mount compared to the Arctic Cooling units I have used in the past.


As for the VRM cooling, it's a bit of a problem. If your card uses a stock PCB layout the large VRM heatsink included on the Morpheus will fit, but if it doesn't you will have to make do with the smaller heatsinks. For my card I had to use the smaller ones with tape. Temps. are worse than stock but don't seem to cause a problem.
